Amnesty International is launching a major new report on the root causes of this year's crisis in Myanmar's Rakhine state. Two years in the making, the investigation reveals the extent of the system of state-sponsored discrimination and segregation facing Rohingyas inside their own country.

Anna Neistat, Amnesty International's Senior Director for Research, is a leading human rights expert and specialist in conflict areas. She has conducted dozens of human rights investigations in areas around the world including in Afghanistan, Syria and Yemen. Anna has authored numerous reports, articles and opinion pieces on these issues and is a regular media commentator on violations of human rights law and humanitarian law in crisis situations.

Laura Haigh, is Amnesty International's Researcher on Myanmar. She has worked on human rights issues in Southeast Asia for almost 10 years and has visited Rakhine state multiple times while researching this report.
